Surrounded by the Argentine Delta, implanted in a trapezoidal lot, overlooking a lagoon; Its north orientation, towards one of its sides, generated the inclusion of a light patio with abundant vegetation, which we also use as the entrance. It works as an articulator; as a transition between the street and the access to the house, it is the heart of it and all the circulations turn towards this space.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe west-facing façade has a sliding gate that is hidden when it opens, with the intention of generating a scenographic sensation towards pedestrian access through a path that changes its forms. The idea is to go through different sensations: first, we can appreciate the music room, with different instruments used by the family, which also eventually opens onto a multipurpose space, generating flexibility of environments. We continue walking and we find the central patio with abundant vegetation and the entrance door that is hierarchized with a wooden paneling that manages to make it go unnoticed.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralIf we keep moving forward, we can cross below a floating volume, which is the clients’ home office space, which in turn has a balcony to the double-height of the living room.

Indian court to rule on Internet firms’ responsibility for third-party content

first_img RSF_en Organisation Receive email alerts —————-Court forces Web firms to remove “objectionable” content9 February 2012Several Internet companies, including the Indian subsidiaries of Google and Facebook, announced on 6 February that they had complied with Indian court directives to remove from their sites content deemed objectionable.At a hearing in New Delhi civil court on that day, a judge ordered 22 firms to provide a detailed report within two weeks on the steps they were taking to remove “offensive” content. The firms, including Google, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube, Blogspot, the Orkut social network and the forum eXBii, had been given until 6 February to remove all offensive material.A judge last month judge asked Web firms to develop mechanisms to check and remove offensive and objectionable material and threatened to block all such websites “like China”. “The escalation of “cleansing” and monitoring of the Internet in India continues apace,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We call on the Indian courts to refrain from excessive directives such as the order to Web firms to remove objectionable content. They must stop forcing these collaborative sites to set up a filtering system and, as in the case of content deemed offensive, to take steps that would be harmful to online freedom of expression. “The most recent legislation on the subject, the “IT Rules”, must be amended so that they do not become an instrument of censorship and repression.”A spokesman for Google India announced on 6 February that some offensive content had been taken down from its Indian search engine and removed from the Indian servers of YouTube, Blogger and Orkut.The nature of the content was not specified, although it was believed to be images that were offensive to some religious groups. Reports Without Borders calls on the company to give details of the content concerned in the Google Transparency Report, where it lists content that has been removed at the request of a governmentThe parent company of Facebook, for its part, said it could not comply with the demands of the Indian courts since its servers were located in the United States. Yahoo, Microsoft and Google have asked for the allegations against their sites to be withdrawn since they are not responsible for content hosted on their Indian servers.In parallel with the civil case, criminal proceedings were launched against the same Internet companies by a Hindu journalist, Vinay Rai, also on the grounds that they are hosting objectionable content. Google India notified the Delhi High Court on 23 December that it would appeal. Reporters Without Borders calls on the court not to force Web firms to assume responsibility for content posted on sites by third parties and to drop the criminal case. A hearing is scheduled for 14 February.The authorities are stepping up their control of information on the pretext of cleansing India’s Internet of content that might fan religious or social tension. According the IT Rules established last year, Internet companies must remove all banned content within 36 hours following notification by the authorities, without a prior court decision as would normally be required. The defendants in the criminal trial of 21 Internet firms accused of hosting offensive content raised several irregularities and points of concern in court this week.They said the process under the IT Rules known as “notice and take down”, under which the hosting company must remove the content as soon as it is notified by the authorities, had not been applied. The websites concerned said they received no requests from the authorities for content to be removed and the complainant, journalist Vinay Rai, had taken the matter directly to court. Lawyers for the companies said they were not responsible for material posted on their servers by third parties, invoking section 79 of the IT Rules which specifies that no network provider can be held responsible for objectionable content posted on its services by third parties if he can show he had no knowledge of it, or that he has taken the necessary steps to prevent a breach of the rules.A lawyer representing the New Delhi police said, however, that the companies had been informed by the government’s Department of Information Technology that content on their servers was offensive and that consequently the exemption under section 79 did not apply.The judge called on the department to provide documentary proof of this allegation. The next hearing is scheduled for 18 February.Lawyers for Google and Facebook objected to the fact that the Indian government is a civil party in litigation between private parties.Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about the consequences of such an intrusion by the state into legal proceedings, which threatens the independence of the courts.The press freedom organization calls on the court to return a moderate verdict which respects freedom of expression as guaranteed under the constitution, and not to place responsibility for content published by third parties on the shoulders of service providers, who currently appear to be the target of a persecution campaign by the authorities. The Wall Street Journal reported on 13 February that an investigation had been launched into whether the Indian affiliates of Google and Yahoo! had broken the government’s foreign exchange laws. The statement by the information technology minister, Kapil Sibal, at an information technology meeting in Mumbai two days ago that “no government in India will ever censor social media” must not fall on deaf ears.

Zane Kesey And The Merry Pranksters Announce Furthur Restoration Benefit Shows With One-Eyed Jack

first_imgLater this month, surviving members of The Merry Pranksters will team up with Zane Kesey, son of writer/counter-culture icon Ken Kesey, to throw a pair of psychedelic concert events in hopes of raising enough money to restore the original “Furthur” bus.As many Deadheads, American historians, and LSD-loving music fans will explain, “Furthur” (also recognized as “Further”) was the colorful bus used by Kesey and The Merry Pranksters (which included Beatnik legend Neal Cassady) during an acid-fueled trip across America in 1964, and later used at the Acid Tests and related events around San Francisco throughout the 1960s. The bus remains an iconic artifact and symbol within the Grateful Dead and countercultural circles thanks to the Pranksters’ influence on the wild decade that was the 1960s. Stories of the bus also played a major role in writer Tom Wolfe‘s seminal counterculture biography, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.According to a report shared on Thursday, two separate events under the branding, “Furthurmore” will take place at Woodmen of the World Hall in Eugene, OR on Friday, March 29th, and Saturday, March 30th. The event on March 29th will feature performances by New Jersey-based jam band One Eyed Jack, in addition to Zahira & Rising Buffalo Tribe and Kesey & The Merry Pranksters. The event the following evening (March 30th) will also include performances from One Eyed Jack and Kesey & The Merry Pranksters, in addition to Soul Vibrator.Both events will also feature “Live Painting” with Ellie Paisley and Aaron Brooks, with added visuals courtesy of The Psychedelic Express Light Show.According to a statement shared via press release to go with this week’s announcement, “The bus [has] since fallen into disrepair but it is now being restored with the help of restoration experts and artists. Proceeds from both nights will go directly to the Furthur Down the Road Foundation, a nonprofit, charitable organization, dedicated to restoring the bus and continuing Ken Kesey’s legacy.”Tickets for both events are on sale now here.[H/T JamBands]last_img read more

With Larry Nance Jr. back from injury, Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma savors his time among starters

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAs good as Kuzma was in his time with the first unit, Walton was always inclined to go back to Nance, who averaged 10.6 points and 7.5 rebounds before breaking his second metacarpal on Nov. 2 in Portland.He beat out fourth-year forward Julius Randle and Kuzma for the starting job in the preseason.“I don’t believe in players losing starting positions from getting hurt,” Walton said. “I think Kuzma did a very nice job of filling in for him, but now that Larry’s ready to play again we’ll put him back to the spot that he earned in training camp.”Nineteen games into his rookie season, Kuzma, who was drafted 27th overall in June, is averaging 15.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. He emerged as a rotation player for the Lakers with strong performances in Summer League and the preseason, and has continued to capitalize on opportunities as they’ve come.Including starting. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “He is really good at just when he is in the game playing basketball and competing,” Walton said. “Whether that is starting or coming off the bench or playing late in the game, I think he will be fine either way.”As a starter, Kuzma matched up with All-Stars like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Paul Millsap.When a young player plays established stars there is always the risk of getting exposed. Instead, Kuzma saw his numbers spike in Nance’s absence, averaging 35.6 minutes compared to 26.8 in his eight games off the bench.His numbers across the board were better when he started games.“I think you get away with more when you are playing against second-unit guys,” Walton said, “but Kuz, a lot of times he finishes games for us. He plays enough minutes where he is going against starters at some point in games anyways.”With his starting stint in the rear-view mirror, until his next opportunity comes or he wins the job outright, as most assume he eventually will, Kuzma pocketed the lessons and moved on.“It just gave me a lot more confidence to play against those guys,” Kuzma said. “So I’ve just got to keep that confidence.”AS BEVERLEY HEALSFive weeks earlier, Lonzo Ball faced a rude NBA awakening. In his debut, he was hounded by Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley.Ball finished with three points, nine rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes, while Beverley crowed in the postgame news huddle by firing a warning shot on behalf of all NBA point guards.In his second matchup with the Clippers, Ball was spared – or deprived, depending on your perspective – of a rematch with Beverley, who is out for the season following knee surgery.Just more than a month into Ball’s career, Clippers coach Doc Rivers raved about the Lakers rookie, saying, “I don’t think he’s going to be good. He’s going to be great.”He and Walton seem to agree Ball has undergone a significant evolution early in his career, even as he continues to learn on the job.“He’s had great games, he’s had subpar games,” Walton said. “He’s gone against different types of players, different stars. People trying to rough him up. … He just has more experience I think in how to handle what’s going on in the game out there.”center_img LOS ANGELES — For 11 games, Kyle Kuzma held down the Lakers’ starting power forward spot. He averaged more than 18 points per game, burnishing both his resume and growing legend.The return of Larry Nance Jr. on Monday, however, meant the fun was over. At least for now.
